End of January Gratitude

Reasons to be thankful within the home and work

I am just getting used to the year twenty twenty and then it is the end, of the month that is. January is over. By this day, Americans should have received their W2s from the (snail) mail if they did not opt-in for a digital copy online. Also by this day, I should have restarted budgeting with my laptop. I have a few hours left. Between budgeting and doing school work, I chose neither one.

So here I am, writing my gratitude list. This is more fun. Perhaps after being inspired by my list, I will gain enough energy to eat the frogs.

What am I thankful for this week. Let me list ten!
  1. Little Josiah tops the list. My 10-month old favorite grandson (I only have one) learned to use my exercise band. I didn't realize he was watching.
  2. He is my number one fan, well, he is the only one who likes my winter sweater. He is so easy to entertain.
  3. He just makes me smile whatever he does. He had his arms up with a book in one hand. I thought he would throw it away. 
  4. And then, he calmed down and start "reading" the book. I think he likes that baby version of The Secret Garden.
  5. A baby shower cake a coworker baked for our boss. It was delicious.
  6. A baby shower gift-card-bouquet arranged by a co-worker on light duty. She did it with one good arm. 
  7. The coworkers who all contributed. My boss will have her own bundle of joy. Her and her husband's first!
  8. The flight of choice that the nurse convention group booked for me. All paid.
  9. The hotel of choice booked for the convention with a kitchenette and a free hot breakfast daily. I am set for the May nursing convention.
  10. A smooth week in the house. No drama. 
That should be all for now. Till next time.

Ten Things of Thankful

Comments

  1. I think I must have missed something. (Was there a line in book Josiah was holding about eating frogs?)

    That is pretty impressive for someone to make a gift-card bouquet using one hand. That is not always the easiest thing to do with two hands.

    Yeah for a smooth week at home with no drama!

  3. No drama...not a bad thing!
    Preferred flight for covention is a good thing
    Doing whatever that secret magic thing is that results in child being instilled with a love of reading? Nothing better.
    Have a good week.

  4. Grandchildren are wonderful! (And if/when you do have more than one, Josiah can still maintain favorite status by just filling in the age: "You're my favorite 1-year-old!") I told my granddaughter recently that she was my favorite 7-year-old, and you should have seen her beam!

What resistance's about? We think we know We watched the media, and they said so The resistance's not fresh, but dark and deep Let's pray from sunrise until we sleep Whichever side we are on, our fate we own Stay kind, do good, we're not alone

Overdue Gratitude

Hello, hello. I am here after two months. I have been meaning to write my gratitude but did not get myself to sit down and actually type and post it. My daughter turned 21, an adult but still young at heart and spirit. She is my forever baby and youngest and smallest.  We celebrated 2020 style, just me and her in Estes. We stayed in a condo with a nice view. The place was by the stream and the water was not all frozen yet. We could hear the water flowing with its relaxing nature sound. We walked outdoors in with the cold breeze. Surprise, surprise, we were the only ones outdoors. The masks, I must admit, felt good to wear as our breath, at least, bouncing back on our face felt warm. Paul and I celebrated our two-months anniversary in a neighboring state and ordered takes-outs. We hang out (in?) ate, drank, and talked. The drive was beautiful passing by packs of rams unsuspecting of the cars passing by. We finally got our professional wedding (and video) shots. They are all beautiful in
